About San Angelo Gives

San Angelo Gives is a powerful 24-hour, online giving event that connects the Concho Valley with community nonprofits to reinforce the value of both local philanthropic giving and community engagement. LOCAL nonprofits' involvement in the event will give members of our community the chance to find and support an organization whose mission aligns with their passion. 

In 2021, donors from all corners of the region generated more than 11,000 gifts and pumped more than $3.7 million into supporting local organizations that provide needed services and tack difficult challenges.

Since 2015, more than $13.5 million has been raised through San Angelo Gives helping to raise awareness, ignite giving, and provide everyone the opportunity to become a philanthropist building a vibrant and thriving community! 

How does the pro-rated match work: Donations made during San Angelo Gives will be amplified by local matching funds and will be distributed to participating nonprofits based on donations received, encouraging donors to make a gift on this particular day.
